can we rely on Herb's cookbook for scjp master studying?
Will it be helpfull, or it just helps with master programming technique at work?

If you are preparing for SCJP i suggest kathy sierra is a best book.
Because the objective of the SCJP is cover in the KATHY SIERRA. In my opinion everybody suggest certification book. JAVA COOK BOOK i didnt read for SCJP.

Hi Marco,

Like Raghu, even I suggest you go for K&B book if you want to pursue SCJP.

In this post, you'll find that Herb himself says the book is not meant for certification -
